Unpopular Anime Opinion #301: DB Kai is better than the original Z


The Buu Saga but…shorter. Eh still kinda boring


The later stages of the Buu arc are nearly unwatchable. Abuse the fast forward button!


Took ’em long enough but I’m glad it’s complete now.


I really like the animation quality but I didn’t like the new Dub dialogue.


Another classic remade in a very well done maner.


Forgot how much I liked this part of the original series.
